The Black Market Food Truck

There’s an interesting story behind every food truck. For me, hearing these stories and how they unfold speaks to not only the food that is served, but the people behind each operation. Where are they coming from? What are they planning? Where did the truck come from? Who is building it out? 

We’ve told a lot of these stories on Buffalo Rising, and I’m sure that we’ll be telling a lot more, starting with this next one. The Black Market Food Truck (Facebook), is not on the road quite yet, but it’s on its way. And thanks to the power of social media, that story can be explored via a video that the two owners have put together (for Kickstarter purposes). 

The reason that this video is so neat, is that it shows exactly what the two chefs, Michael Dimmer and Christian Willmott from The Nines Catering Company (Facebook), have ahead of them, and the road(s) that they will need to take to get the truck from its current condition to their ideal mobile cooking operation. 
What exactly does it take to get a 1968 truck retrofitted to serve up gourmet deli-style sandwiches and Vietnamese Banh Mi? 
Let’s take a look and see…
